EXCLUSIVE! 5 fast facts about Eva Carlton from The Really Loud House
On Nickelodeon's The Really Loud House, Eva Carlton shines as upbeat fashionista Leni Loud—and, get this—she's just as positive (and stylish!) IRL. We caught up with Eva to learn *everything* we could about her before we catch the series premiere on Nov. 3...
1. She's obsessed with comedy TV.
Eva: "Growing up, I watched a lot of comedy. I do now, too! I loved Sam and Cat, Victorious, iCarly, Wizards of Waverly Place. With The Really Loud House, I love that it's a show that you can watch after dinner with the entire family. It's funny to people of all ages—it's a great feel-good show."
2. She and her castmates got *super* close on set.
Eva: "I'm 18, and before filming, I wasn't super used to being around younger kids—I'm mostly around people my age and then my little sister who just turned 16. But I loved it and I really clicked with everyone. I also really connected with my costar Sophia Woodward, the only other person on set who is 18. We found a great friendship. Everyone on set was so kind and down-to-earth. My fave memory was the day when we all decided to dress up like the crew members!"
3. Like her character Leni, she hearts fashion.
Eva: "My mom calls me an aesthete. I've been trying to get out of the habit of trend cycles—the internet is so saturated with trends that I used to just kind of go along with that. But I've recently tried to detach myself, like, I don't look at Pinterest anymore. I'm trying to develop my own personal style instead. Recently, I've been trying to lean into more timeless and classic looks with articles of clothing I know I can keep for awhile. I'm a big fan of dresses and skirts—like a cute minidress with a jacket or a blazer."
4. She can *seriously* relate to one part of Leni's personality.
Eva: "Leni's vibe is just totally extra, which I completely relate to! I'm always the person who is overdressed and that's so Leni. She's very bubbly, very kind and she loves life. I'm also pretty high-energy, though I don't necessarily relate to her cluelessness."
5. She's learned a lot about finding confidence.
Eva: "I used to deal with some issues where, like, I would change who I was depending on who I was around so that they would like me. It sounds cliché, but I've learned that if someone doesn't like the real you...they're not for you. Being yourself and following your heart will always make you happy in the end."
